I am 4 weeks post poisin ivy. I came in contact with poison ivy on Aug 5th and went through the whole blistery, oozing, itchy portion of my punishment. I had it on both my arms and face. Now that I am healing, the blisters have all dried up and scabs have come off, but I am soooo itch on my arms- in fact I think I am more itchy than I was when I was blistering. My aarms look 90% better aside from a few scars and dark patches. But I have what seems to be like a rash on my arms. small bumps almost like prickly heat. It is very itch. I am still applying hydrocotisone to help with the itch. It works a little. Anyway, is this still part of the poison ivy? is there anything I should do? I have had it with this poison ivy, Does it ever end???
